You Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover...

Reading, writing, speaking, and listening are all spokes in the powerful wheel of literacy.  It is not enough for students to just “get by” when it comes to these critical skills.  Being able to effectively use and apply knowledge of the English language provides students with limitless opportunities. Our Literacy Classes focus on the core components required for mastery of these valuable skills.  Our goal is to prepare students to be strong communicators and thinkers who don’t just compete, but excel in our ever changing global world.     

The evidence is overwhelming. Introducing a child to reading gives them
one of the most important personal habits they’ll need to have a successful
career and a happy, productive life.

You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.
